Earlier in the run the tuna were stuffed with only the chunks being provided by anglers, but now there s natural bait to keep them in the area. The Golden Eagle from Belmar canceled tomorrow s tuna trip, but added a new 18-hour trip next Tuesday at 11 p. m.
It s been many years since there was a real giant bluefin tuna fall run in the Mud Hole, but Capt. Arthur Stokes is expecting something will be happening after spotting them out there on Sunday. Stokes was a friend of the late Dean of N. J. Giant tuna Fishing, Capt. Bob Pisano.
More then likely we will be starting the fall run with bait (live eels) We ill be fishing some fast current at times so make sure you bring a rod that can handle a heavy sinker 8-14 oz. You can also use them if the current is not strong for the bait fishing and you don't need a heavy sinker.
Posted on October 2, 2020 Small blues still a best bet for inshore boaters The Golden Eagle from Belmar had another good catch of 1-4-pound bluefish today along with some bonito and little tunny. Capt. Dave Riback may switch Tuesday s bonito little tunny trip unless he hears some good info about the species sought.
